The FIA Formula One World Championship need to implement a full-time travelling safety team like the one that the NTT INDYCAR SERIES has.

The Haas F1 Team’s Kevin Magnussen suffered a massive crash in Mexico and it took the medical team a while to get to the Danish driver.

Contrast the response time in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, the AMR Safety team hear yellow, yellow, yellow and in many cases they are on the scene of an accident even before a car comes to a stop following an impact.

The marshals in Formula One are part time volunteers whereas all of the track safety team in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES know the drivers.

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES safety and medical teams undergo intense training during the off season whereas this does not happen in Formula One.

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES also have permanent race officials ehich gives the sport consistency but this is not the case in Formula One.
